“I don’t think there’s any question: he looks explosive,” McVay said via the Washington Post. “He looks like he is exactly what he was in the 2012 season. I think people underestimate when you have a brace on your knee how much that truly restricts you….So I think being able to take that off, he looks extremely explosive.
“And when you’re a quarterback that has the ability to kind of buy time with your legs, keep your eyes downfield and then if guys are playing with their back to the quarterback, now he’s got a chance to take off and run it and create yards that way,” McVay said. “So I think that’s going to be a big part of what he does. And he’s continuing to get more and more comfortable feeling some of those soft spots in the pockets, and being able to remain a passer while also understanding that hey, I do have this elite trait with my legs and athleticism, that if things do break down I can create that way also.”
It snot necessarily a good thing that Griffin looks like he did in 2012. The biggest problem he needs to overcome is his inability to throw from the pocket. He was a running quarterback that would throw off play action in 2012. He won’t be able to get away with that this coming season.
